Every year I struggle with sticking to our schedule when spring arrives. After the long, cold winter days, we just want to spend time outside enjoying the sunshine and nature. Spring really is our favorite time of the year, but that doesn’t mean we can abandon our homeschooling. At least not completely.
And I know I’m not the only one. Each year I get email after email and comment after comment about how tough it is to stay focused and actually finish the school year with spring calling their name. And more often than not, kids get restless and they want to be outdoors just as much as you do.
So how can we ensure that we finish strong during the beautiful days of spring? During the month of March, we are going to share some great tips, ideas and even fun printables to help you finish strong!
This is the place where you will find everything related to the series. We will also be sharing and chatting about finishing strong in the In All You Do Community on Facebook. This is a small, but growing group of homeschool moms just like yourself who want to homeschool to the best of their ability.
All the posts from the series will be shared there each morning, Plus there will be exclusive giveaways only shared in the group, information about our amazing series sponsors and a Facebook Party to close out the month on the 28th of March! If you’re not a member, be sure to request to join, so you don’t miss a thing!
